Judge for yourselves...Led Zeppelin face a new trial over claims the band stole a guitar riff for their 1971 song, Stairway to Heaven.
A California appeals court overruled a 2016 case that said the band did not steal the opening of their hit from Taurus by the band Spirit.
The court cited a series of errors by the previous case's judge.
Led Zeppelin band members Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, however, say the song is their masterpiece, which they wrote in a Welsh cottage.
Michael Skidmore, trustee for the songs of Spirit guitarist Randy Wolfe, originally filed the suit in 2015.
